Taking notes

Hi everyone,

A new Monday means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. This week there are no rules. It's an Anything goes challenge! Please join us!


 If you know me a little bit, I'm the person who writes everything on little notes. That causes that I often loose or misplace them. Now I needed a place to write down my groceries, so I know what to buy when things I'm almost out of it. A perfect time to make me one. As covers I used canvas boards. I covered them with a layer of Gesso. I think the exclusive Simon Says Stamp Sketched Alphabet Stamp set is really gorgeous. And to get a crisp image on an uneven surface, I have stamped the letters one by one on tissue paper. I cut them out seperately and adhered them with Multi Mediaum Matte.



With the Cork Sheets I've made this cork heart. The cork combined with the exclusive Simon Says Stamp Large Heats Die and exclusive Simon Says Stamp Diagonal Stripe Stencil makes such a fun embellishment.



The tabs I made by covering a piece of cardboard with washi tape, fold it and cut it out with the My Favorite Thing Tabs. Note that you place the folded edge just below the top cutting edge of the die. This way you get a folded tab instead of a single tab.



The inside I made in Abobe Illustrator and printed it on plain printer paper. To give it a little color, I've applied Picked Raspberry Distress Ink with the exclusive Simon Says Stamp Diamond Circles Stencil.

This is great Sandra! Love the altered cover and that you even made the notepages pretty. The cork is real cool and the canvas perfect. I also write stuff on little notes and keep losing them.

What a fabulous little notebook! The impressive part is that the inside is just as stunning as the cover! I really liked that pop of neon pink with the stencil that adds such energy to the inside pages. All I can say is that my grocery lists can only dream of looking this fancy some day!
